With the controversial World Cup star Luis Suarez leaving Anfield for the Camp Nou, the Merseyside club will now be looking to replace their star man.
Last season Suarez hit 31 goals in an impressive 33 games and almost enabled Liverpool to claim their first Premier League trophy; it makes sense to claim that the free scoring striker is irreplaceable.
Can he be replaced?
During this summer's transfer window Brendan Rodgers has already bought two strikers in Rickie Lambert and Divok Origi but these two players simply cannot repeat the type of class and skill Suarez brought to the club.
It's debatable that after the biting incident at the World Cup Suarez is too much of a risk as he has missed over 16 matches due to bans, but nevertheless his pure talent is shown so frequently that he is up their with the best players in the world.
But for Liverpool the coming season really is a test with regards to what they can do without being dependant on Suarez.
It looked at one point that Liverpool were going to sign Loic Remy for a reasonable £8.5million but that deal fell through due to a failed medical, according to reports.
With just over a month left of the transfer window the Reds will have to move quickly and assure themselves the capture of a top class striker. The only reassuring thing is that the money that Liverpool received from the Suarez deal is able to fund that of a world class striker.
